Good Fortune Mystery Quilt-a-long

Despite my best intentions to not start a new project without finishing up several WIPs (one for charity, shame on me!), I found myself drawn into Bonnie Hunter's Good Fortune Mystery QAL.  I follow her scrap organization system for the most part, cutting my smaller pieces into use-able ready to go precuts.  So when I … Continue reading Good Fortune Mystery Quilt-a-long
